Progress on Renewables Project

During the first two weeks of November, IRC’s resident volunteers teamed with SunWork, a non-profit dedicated to helping homeowners and small organizations adopt solar power, to install solar panels on the roof at IRC.  The solar panel installation was preceded by an extensive rewiring project. The rewiring, a major upgrade, prepared the facility for the installation of a replacement generator in October as well as the solar panels.  The new system and the cost savings from generating our own power will contribute to IRC’s financial well-being for decades to come.  Many thanks to our resident volunteers, donors, and finance team for achieving IRC’s goal of converting to renewable energy!
